THE BALENCIAGA SHOPPING BAG

Balenciaga seems to love trolling the fashion world. In April, the brand released a $2,145 version of the IKEA bag, leaving people confused and amused. They’ve done it again, this time, with their own brand.¬†Balenciaga has just released a $1,100 version of the shopping bag consumers receive when they buy something at one of their stores.

The difference, other than the price, is in the fabric. The expensive version is made of calfskin, the handles of leather, and it includes silver hardware. For some reason, the bag sold out almost immediately. But never fear, if you’d like to always look like you bought something from Balenciaga, the bags will be restocked soon.
